This November It’s About Time

It is considered to be a rare cancer.

And yet, it is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the USA. November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, and Croixstone has joined forces with the Charlotte Pancreatic Cancer Alliance and the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition to create awareness for the world’s toughest cancer. 

For Croixstone, the mission to create awareness is very personal.  Our CEO and co-founder, Patti Weber, lost her father to pancreatic cancer in 2005.  7 years later, our Managing Partner and co-founder, Mark Weber, lost his mother to the same disease.

Since there is no early detection for pancreatic cancer, it is important that you know the symptoms and risks associated with the disease. Please take just a few minutes and click HERE to learn the basics of pancreatic cancer symptoms and risks. Then take time to share your new knowledge with your family and friends. 

Your actions could save a life (even your own)!


Mark Weber, Croixstone’s Managing Partner, Speaks with WBTV

On August 16th, the family of Aretha Franklin confirmed that the 18-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter died of pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer.  Croixstone leaders Mark and Patti Weber each lost a parent to pancreatic cancer, and both actively volunteer with the Charlotte Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to increase awareness of the disease and raise money for research.  Maureen O’Boyle of WBTV (Charlotte’s CBS Affiliate) recently interviewed Mark about his passion to rewrite the future of pancreatic cancer.  Read the interview here.


Walk With Croixstone

Although pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S., most people know little about the disease.  Croixstone Consulting is a huge supporter of the Charlotte Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, a nonprofit dedicated to fighting the world’s toughest cancer on all fronts:  research, clinical initiatives, patient services and advocacy.  So why does Croixstone passionately fight to rewrite the future of this disease?  Patti Weber lost her father in 2005 to pancreatic cancer, and Mark Weber lost his mother to the same disease in 2012.  We invite you, your friends and loved ones to join us at PurpleStride Charlotte, the walk to end pancreatic cancer, on September 15 in Uptown Charlotte.  Join our team here.

Pancreatic cancer is the world’s toughest cancer with a five-year survival rate of just 9 percent in the United States. It is the third leading cause of cancer-death in the USA and demands urgent action to save lives.  Mark Weber, Croixstone’s founder and Managing Partner, lost his mother to this deadly disease in 2012 and serves as the Media Relations Chair (volunteer role) for the Charlotte Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.  Patti Weber, Croixstone’s Chief Experience Officer, lost her  father to pancreatic cancer in 2005 and volunteers as Teams Ambassador for the Charlotte Affiliate’s annual PurpleStride event.
